Hey guys and girls
So aside from the project which is obviously NOT happening, ive decided I am going to work through a drawing book on figures. In all honesty I am not the best figure drawer, in fact as you will probably notice throughout my work I draw abstractly because I look at texture moreover obvious details.
So perfecting the drape of fabric and creating different textures in a range of medias is what I aim to do. I am starting with taking self drawn images back to their most raw form, e.g pencil and paper, ink and scribe, black fiber tip pen smudged with water.
Check out what ive been up to so far 🙂
Page one Texture 101 – playing with pencil, how you can create shadow effects using different line thickness and good quality pencils.
Page two Fabric 102 – I was trying to show a large body of fabric (in the form of a ball gown) I used a black fibre tip pen, and a thin paintbrush with water on to create form, drape, shape and light on the fabric. Also here you can see how the amount of pressure applied to the pen effects the thin quality and still proved a texture in itself.
Page three Texture in fibre pen 103 – As the pen drawn dress plus water smudging worked out really well, I thought I would demonstrate how effective this technique is. I love the round circles at the bottom, I swear to you I only used a black fibre tip pen and water. The different coloirs you can see in the black from this page and pge two, come about because there are two types of black. And in the two pages I used Two different black fibre tip pens.
